RE: J. Cleber Walker

I have done countless hours of research. You can view my tree at I have gone to great lengths to try and find all the photos I can. Plus, my parents left me with all the old family albums and I am trying to get them out there so everyone has access. I am not sure how I obtained this exact photo but it makes me feel so good that someone now can view it.

Memorial 154608231 Phoebe Dunn
Just an FYI: I believe her name was originally spelled Phebe. Named after her grandmother Phebe Jones Sims. Census did spell it Feby, but we know that census takers spelled names the way they sound. Somewhere along the line the spelling did get changed to Phoebe. Again, Just an FYI.

RE: Conrad Keicher
Thanks, Gayle for the reply. A chance I have not seen very recent records, so I will say this since I have seen much of this info on Trees thru the years. Some from my info of 30 years ago including Eliz. Linebarger. I have collected as many records as possible on Conrad Keicher. There is no birth info other than the 1870 census, looks like "ger" in the box "was father forein born". There appears to be no record for Margaret Layrle (the German spelling). We "assume" her as wife of Conrad because of several Rowan Co., NC civil records that give us hints. Her family has no record for her other than she is mentioned in Johann Christopher Layrle's German will. All we know about her is that Conrad will says "my wife Margaret" and from the Washington Co., TN estate records. Her birth hint is the 1830 census of 1750-1759. However, I think there is a good chance that she was first born; before Zaahariah Layrle and before Johann arrived in Culpeper. VA fits well.
Elizabeth Linebarger married 12 Mar 1789 in Rowan Co., NC to Christian Keicher by Pastor Storch. Some Trees will show the same day and month but with a different year to "try' to prove she is the mother of Conrad. By the way, Pastor Storch married your Nicholas Linebarger. I feel safe to say that we have enough records now to disprove much of the Trees info of years past. Please let me know if you wish more info. Richard Kyker

Conrad Keicher
Gayle, I am a 35 year researcher of Conrad Keicher, Sr. and I would like to share corrections to Find a Grave info for him. 1st, I would like to know his death date, the best I can prove is bef. 5 Oct.(from his inventory). He has no sibling named Conrad but may also have a brother named, Christian. I know of no marriage info other than it is a good assumption that she was Margaret Layrle (no place or date). Her birth is not known but census would hint between 1750 to 1759. *Most of all is that Eliz, Linebarger was not the mother of Conrad and Geo. Adam Keicher. Mother still unknown. Their father is still unknown but "may" have been named Christian. Conrad's name was always spelled Keicher (except for civil records}. His son, Joseph, changed spelling to Kyker c.1832. Family of son, John, changed to Kiker c. 1865. Hope this helps but to assist in future research, Eliz. Linebarger should be removed.
Thank you for your effort in trying to help people with information.
Yours in genealogy, Richard Earl Kyker

The number is # 175947747, also to answer your question about the name FOX, in White Rock cemetery I can get the answer to a specific question you may have from living residents of the area, who are over ninety years old. But, the name has nothing to do with my family.

Have a blessed day.

Simple message to let you know I added Jill to Find a Grave and linked her mother to your post. Glad you added the post and lovely picture of the White Rock gravel stone. May I added the stone to Jill's post?

RE: walker

Added by Oz on Dec 10, 2016 11:54 AM

She is not The daughter of Thomas Bullard 1759-1837. She is the daughter of Thomas J. B. Bullard 1750-1823, who did die in Elbert Co., GA, and left a will mentioning her.

Frances K. McDonald Walker
First of all, thank you for all the work you have done for FindaGrave. Second, I know how easily things can get confusing. I'm sitting here tonight completely confused. Frances, is my husbands third great aunt and I usually don't go that far off to the side but I've had so much fun working on his grandmothers side of the family, I thought I would look into it. As I was posting her burial information, I noticed she at Chitwood which is McDonald Cemetery on one. On another, she is at Nectar with a notation that the grave was lost because it beside a river. The third, stated the grave was lost because it was near a river in Blount County. So, there are three Memorials. Personally, I would like to think she is at McDonald because it is a beautiful cemetary and I would hate to think of her grave being lost.

Please let me know, which one I should use.

Thank you.

Can you tell me if there is a Thomas and/or Helena (Ellena) Sparrow buried at Dighton? In the obituary of her mother, Ellena Sparrow was living in Dighton in 1933.
This is the last bit of evidence that I have been able to find for her.
Thomas and Helena had a son George, whom I think is buried there.

Thank you so much, Marilyn

RE: Thank You! Divinia Photos & Plot Locations

Hello Again Gayle,

Thanks for the burial info you sent for both Divinia's. The date for the son fits the death date I have. However, William's does not. I used June 29, 1923 as his death date, am sure this was per the Requiem book in the Ness County Historical Society.

What is the source of your May 1923 date for burial? Our dates, of course, are contradictory so I'm curious.

I am packing for my trip to Missouri so will double-check at my end when I return (end of the month). Just wanted to let you know this and ask about your source while your message is "fresh". Thanks so much for sharing what you are finding.

RE: Thank You! Divinia Photos & Plot Locations

Hi Gayle,

Thank you for replying and for your work at Buda Cemetery. I am doing something similar at a smaller cemetery (long abandoned) in rural NW Missouri---in fact I'm making my 2nd trip of the year there next week. Hoping to buy a new marker for my 3X GGrandparents and get a sign made among other things.

I don't know William's middle name, no records I found for him gave it and I never had a real clue based on his father's name (Samuel) or those of other ancestors of his.

Since you mention William owned all 8 Sections in Lot 72, I'm curious who else is buried in that Lot. Would you be able to list the names for me?

I love to find out who is buried with/next to whom because it sometimes answers tough questions. I've already checked his daughter's married name (Davidson) and the boarders from Polo, MO (Myers) but none are in Buda.

Thanks again for the nice work you are doing at Buda. I agree with Paying it Forward and hope you can feel my warm appreciation all the way from California!

Thank You! Divinia Photos & Plot Locations

Hello Gayle,

What a wonderful surprise to find your photos of the grave markers for William C Divinia and his son James Vance Divinia on their memorials! I had no idea if there would be a marker of any type on their graves and now I can see them!

I also appreciate you sending the Plot locations in Buda Cemetery where they are buried. I see they are in the same Lot but different Sections. If not too much trouble, would you let me know if that means they are side by side? William died about 9 years after his young son, so I'm unsure.

Do you volunteer at the Ness County Historical Society? Either way, I am so impressed with how helpful you and the women who assisted me with the Requiem info earlier this year have been.

Thank you for taking the time to go to Buda Cemetery and photograph William and James' markers and send the plot locations. I feel really good about my research into my Kansas Divinia ancestors and the photos are like the icing on the cake.

RE: John H McKelvy, Dighton Memorial Cemeter, Kansas
Thank you.

The flag poles that line the roads in the cemetery each have a veteran plaque with the name of a veteran, service and conflict. It's kind of a neat thing, particularly on Decoration Day (Memorial Day), the 4th of July and other holidays. It's a beautiful sight seeing all those flags snapping the Kansas breeze.

Pretty sure the plaque was done by my aunts, Gertrude and Blanche McKelvy but I could be wrong about exactly who did it.

John H McKelvy, Dighton Memorial Cemeter, Kansas

John H. McKelvy (not McKelvey) was my great grandfather.

He did not serve in the Navy, he served in the Army during the Civil War, specifically, Company K, 4th Regiment, Pennsylvania Cavalry. He was living in Barkeyville, Venango, Pennsylvania at the time of the naval record (it's a different guy).

Most of the other information is correct (actually, I think I provided it).

The kids who dug up his remains at Ravanna did so in June, 1969 and were ordered to clean up the cemetery, excavate the grave under the direction of a archeologist, buy a coffin and attend the burial at Dighton Memorial Cemetery.

I'd appreciate it if you could correct the information and, if you need more information I'll be happy to provide it. You can contact me at ronayne dot thomas at grmail dot com.

Thank you,

Thomas Ronayne
